Patagonia no es ajena a las dificultades de deshacerse de las cosas. Recibimos el 100 por ciento del equipo que nos devuelves para reciclarlo a través de nuestro programa Worn Wear. En 2018, reciclamos más de tres toneladas de productos. Pero no podemos reciclar o reparar todo lo que nuestros clientes nos envían. Muchos de…

What if we could wear our garbage? That’s the idea behind ReCrafted, our line of clothing made from the scraps of used garments collected at our Worn Wear facility in Reno. It’s premium, Patagonia, upcycled. A second life for products that might not otherwise get one. ReCrafted was created by Kourtney Morgan—the designer behind some…

This holiday season, I have an early New Year’s resolution for the sake of Planet Earth: let’s all become radical environmentalists. This sounds like a big leap—but it’s not. All you need is a sewing kit and a set of repair instructions. As individual consumers, the single best thing we can do for the planet…

In the spring of 2015, Patagonia hired me to document a lively traverse across the United States—the Worn Wear tour. The story is as follows. “What in the heck is that thing you got there?” mutters a middle age lady smoking a cigarette out back of the service station. “It’s a mobile clothing repair wagon,” I…

Estimados Patagonia, Mis Baggies Shorts rosa, de Patagonia, son los mejores shorts que he tenido en mi vida.

Dear Patagonia, My pink Patagonia Baggies Shorts are the best shorts I’ve ever owned.

Raising Less Wasteful Kids—Starting with One Red Hand-Me-Down Jacket

The jacket was probably red once but it’s now more of a muddy pink with an overlay of permanent scuff and smudge. The zipper, replaced four years ago, stands out a little brighter. The interior sports a size tag (Kids XXS) but has no hand-me-down label—it predates that Patagonia tradition. Around 13 years ago, it…
